Frankana Caravan und Freizeit GmbH, together with the sister company FREICO, is one of the leading wholesalers of the camping and recreational equipment industry. The product range comprises 10,000 articles in various sizes and materials, from flooring, tents and awnings to batteries. Due to the increased demand, the existing plant at the Gollhofen location will be extended by an additional hall, connected with conveyors by the intralogistics specialist Klinkhammer and equipped with a modern incoming goods area, a pallet and a cantilever warehouse.
The stacked full and empty container conveyor technology connects the existing system with the new hall. There, a modern incoming goods area with 12 service and returns workplaces and the skin packaging area ensure optimized processes. The warehouse management system is extended by a manual pallet warehouse with 9 aisles and 4,500 storage locations as well as by a cantilever warehouse. Thanks to the new conveyor technology and the modern equipped workplaces, an ergonomic, back-friendly and joint-gentle work is possible.
This is already the third expansion stage and capacity extension which is implemented in Gollhofen by Klinkhammer. The existing system comprises a pallet, shelf and cantilever storage as well as an automated order consolidation buffer for containers. An intelligent conveyor technology connects the storage areas across 3 floors with order picking via pick-by-voice, with packaging and with shipping.
